MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Village officials said Monday, Nov. 3, that Department of Public Works crews are cleaning up graffiti from Halloween that includes vulgarity and a symbol of hate.
The village emailed this message to its residents on Monday:
"On Friday, Halloween night, some person, or persons, sprayed graffiti on one of our local streets, including a symbol that is known to invoke hatred and emotional hurt, as well as crude depictions of body parts. The village of Mamaroneck police responded to the scene, and an investigation is ongoing at this time. While this matter may have been intended as a prank, it is being treated as a crime, and the Police Department is pursuing leads.
"The village of Mamaroneck's DPW was dispatched on Saturday afternoon to make the first effort to remove or black out the graffiti, but due to the rain and dampness during the day on Saturday, the cleaning chemicals and paint did not resolve the issue 100 percent, so DPW workers are finishing up the job today, Monday, November 3, 2014."
